Well, actually I agree. But their stuff is preferable, IMO, to Coldwater Creek. If you love jeans, have a look at NYDJ. I own one of their tops, and it is quite nicely made. I may try their jeans this fall. My go to, Lands End has started showing jeans made of cotton, rayon and something else. Thatís just wrong!

I'm in my 50's, and I look younger. Part of it just genetics. Part of it is attitude and keeping in shape.

I have shoulder length hair, and am slim, so when I'm wearing sunglasses I can pass for MUCH younger than I am. (haha I was at a beach cabana not terribly long ago, in a cute maillot bathing suit and cover up, pony tail and sunglasses. I ordered a glass of wine and the bartender said I need to see some proof of ID so I lifted my sunglasses. He actually said whoah, and gave me the glass of wine without further ado. The eyes'll get ya everytime).

Less makeup if you have healthy skin, pretty pink natural looking (not bright) lipstick, youthful bounce.

I also agree with those who say color your hair, and cover the grey with multi-dimensional color that's somewhere in the middle hues. Black hair is NOT the answer, nor is peroxide blonde. Nor is one-note orange hair. Something in the middle with highlights. I also think women our age often have kind of "Edith Bunker hair" which is awful. Longer, wavy, flattering the face and neck is better. But don't have that awful dry crackly long witch hair. Moderation.

Good luck!

Women always cut there hair shorter as they get older, my keeps her hair just past her shoulders and I swear it makes her look at least 10 years younger than if it was short! I also agree with keeping it colored!

Get healthy.
Smile.
Don't fight it.
I'm not a fan of the obvious hair color that covers up gray. Spend a little and get some good color.
You might find a good cosmotologist who can advise you on updating your look.

Skin. Find a skin care regime that keeps the skin on your face looking youthful. Hyaluronic acid serum does it for me. I like the kind with Vitamin C. I get it on Amazon. Keeps my skin looking and feeling soft without the crepey wrinkles that many women my age develop.

Hair. Find a hairdo that looks snappy and is easy to keep up. Chin to shoulder length works for a lot of women. Jaimie Lee Curtis rocks a pixie cut. So it all depends. Color helps many women knock off a decade or so.

Posture. Pull those shoulders back.

as many have stated "attitude" and how you carry yourself can take decades off....smile often many believe smiles will only show more wrinkles and look older but I believe its the opposite...

be optimistic, and energetic (not slouch, or grumpy)

attractiveness has many layers..... if a smile lights up a face I dont see wrinkles....also remember god gave us age appropriate eyes meaning..... a 40 yr old person may look "old" to a 20 yr old but not to another 40 yr old....

we are all getting physically older but we dont have to act it

Makeup is to hide, you should focus more on enhancing the natural beauty of your skin. Aging is inevitable but you can take help of anti-aging creams and serums to rejuvenate the skin from within. Natura Beaute Youth Cream is a product that I recently came across for achieving Radiant, Wrinkle Free Skin.
My aunt uses this cream & loving how it has helped her.

Get your teeth whitened if you haven't already. Find non-irritating eyedrops if your eyes have any redness so your eyes look bright. Find a skin firming cream you like (Murad collagen booster is one good one but pricey, Olay Regenerist Miracle Boost is less $$, Lifeline Skin Care is very very good but over $100).

Look at creams that reduce the effects of sun damage. They will have retinoids. Check reviews on Amazon. This will take regular use over a couple of months to see real results.
